Such Gifts

I’ve been listening to the trees
                                            all my life.

Fifty years later, I understand
they have been talking to me.

Whispering, willowing waves
branches
and leaves saying we love you.
We are the tickle in your ears,
whispering words
of peace.
Soothing your eyes in times
of grief.

Sing to the joy of emptiness, we
smooth away your fears;  we bathe
you in the grace of giving.
Giving

is the greatest gift.  Giving away
your name, your ego, your shame.
Giving you
forgiveness.

Knowledge is a sharing gift.
Give
what you have learned.
